The Garden Setting

Menabillie Manor’s one and half acre garden has many locations for quiet contemplation and reading. Its pond is usually alive with frogs and there are numerous European and Australian native trees all of which provide a canopy of shade in the summer and usher in an autumn spectacular kaleidoscope of colour.   The chooks find it a haven to freely range but have to retire early to guard against the local wily fox.   There is an abundance of roses and the spring bulbs of tulips and daffodils and jonquils provide a blaze of colour.  The landscaped pond and three-tiered water fountain attract diverse wild bird life.
